Tim Hartman Assemblies

Broadway actor, national storyteller, comedian, and singer, Tim combines his talents to perform Storytelling Programs like you’ve never seen before! Though known primarily for his work on the stage (including nearly 300 plays and musicals and appearances on Broadway in "A Tale of Two Cities" and the Tony nominated "Finian's Rainbow”), Tim’s favorite job is performing his own brand of stand-up comedy storytelling. It is estimated he has performed for over 2 million children over a thirty-year period.  

Folk Trails
Bullying has become a hot topic for schools all across the country. Storytelling is the universal language that can address this problem. Follow Tim’s folk trail around the globe to visit a bullied South American crab, an Egyptian monk who can’t seem to get rid of a basket of grapes, and a Japanese lord who will do whatever it takes to save his people. This show encourages children to see how much better the world would be if generosity, kindness, and self-sacrifice were the first reaction to every situation.
Do you want your children to be excited about creative writing? This program has a twenty-five-year record of success! Thousands of children have laughed their way to better writing skills through this great program. Using the traditional French Fairy Tale, “How Johnny Pancake Almost Married the Princess of France,” Tim takes his audience through the steps of good story building.  It’s a fun and inspiring way to help kids get excited about writing.
